Does anybody else think that Ducati have really really lost their way under Rossi?? I t seems he did nothing but go backwards !!! Check back to the gp10 desmosedici ... It looks so much neater with the smaller fairing and carbon frame ... In stoners hands in was a winner when he left and nicky was also competitive!!!! They need to roll back to go forward I think ??

Dovi thinking "I've got to go back out again?" And thats before its bitten him.

Cal and Redding must be thanking thier lucky stars that the contract negotiations came to nothing.

@ someone

Good point! Before the season ended, everybody on Crash ranted about how Dovi and Iannone were going to show Rossi the way (especially after Iannone's fast lap during private testing). The proof is in the pudding here! They won't even muster the 5-7th place finishes that Rossi was able to achieve on a fairly regular basis, and I'd reckon that majority of the Ducati boys aside from Hayden won't even crack the top 10 by the end of the year.

the duke is a living breathing monster , i hear it has to be locked in a cage at night with drones circling above in case it gets out.
this thing is the fastest bike in motogp , yet when one hops on it has a whole bag of devious tricks to terrorize the poor buggas with , and plastering them with a thousand mile stare.
i wouldn't be surprised if there is a boxing glove on a loaded spring built into the console.

This photo of Dovi says it all. Rossi had the same look, Nicky has the same look....serious changes need to happen to this bike like a complete redesign. Hang in there Dovi and hopefully you won't lose much of your racers edge riding this bike.

it's funny

last year before dovi rode ducati, everyone say's if he succeed riding a duc and put it in the front is because Dovi was greater tha Rossi

Now Dovi also failed and they blame to Rossi for developing the duc backward.

Casey is exceptional for riding that duc thats why he win some races and crash but in today duc even he, knows he can't win in it.

Duc gave a lot of parts or even gave Rossi a newly design bike but not what they actually asked.

Even Casey wouldn't ride that pose, he know it, even duc offer him a lot of money just to stay.

Bit baffled as why an uncompetitive product needs to be so embarrassingly in MotoGP. Triumph - a similar heritage company - does very well without MotoGP. Don't get me wrong as I love MotoGP, just don't understand some of the perverse logic!
